Building community around integrated curriculum

About the Teacher Exchange

UCCI Teacher Exchange events are designed to provide teachers with the time and space to prepare to teach UCCI courses. UCCI Teacher Exchange participants:

  • Receive a complete set of materials for implementing the first unit of the course
  • Work directly with a UCCI Teacher Exchange Leader to test out projects in the course
  • Collaborate with colleagues to develop course curriculum beyond the first unit

There is no cost for teacher participants to attend a UCCI Teacher Exchange, and a working lunch is provided. UCCI works with requesting schools/districts to pay the UCCI Teacher Exchange Leader a stipend for his/her work in preparing for and leading the Exchange.

UCCI Teacher Exchange FAQ

Who should attend a UCCI Teacher Exchange?
Teachers who are currently teaching a UCCI course or who are interested in teaching a UCCI course are encouraged to attend a UCCI Teacher Exchange. The Exchange will offer you the time and support to collaborate with other teachers to develop and modify the instructional materials you'll need to successfully implement one of these unique integrated courses.
When and where are these events held?
Exchanges are held in different regions of the state based on need. For instance, our UCCI Teacher Exchange in Riverside, CA, focused on the UCCI course Algebra 2 for the 21st Century because we had three Riverside-area high schools interested in implementing the course. If you are interested in having a UCCI Teacher Exchange in your area, fill out our UCCI Exchange interest form, and we will follow up with you soon

I already teach a UCCI course. Is there a role for me at the UCCI Teacher Exchange?

In a word: Yes! If you are currently teaching a UCCI course and are interested in a leadership role that would allow you to share the expertise you have gained with other teachers who are about to teach that course for the first time, you could be a UCCI Exchange Teacher Leader. In doing so, you will join a growing group of educators who share their experience and expertise with others who are newer to teaching integrated curriculum. To apply, fill out our UCCI Teacher Exchange Leader application, and we'll be in touch!
